Parents were Alva T. West and Elizabeth Jordan. She was born in Rhea's Mill. She was the oldest of five, two boys and three girls. She grew up during the Civil War. Here is one of her earliest memories...She grew up during the Civil War in Rhea's Mill, Washington, Arkansas. If Union soldiers came looking for her father, (she would be hiding under a bridge), she would run across the fields to warn him, so he could get away. Her family must have been fairly well off, because they had the only piano in that part of the country and the Confederate soldiers would congregate at their home to sing and have parties. Once when the Union soldiers came, her father got away but they burned their house, barn, and everything they had. It was the same at Grandma Jordan's a few miles away. All that was left was a 2 wheeled cart and a milk cow. Grandma Jordan defended that cow with a gun. She told the soldiers that she'd shoot the first one that touched it. They salvaged what they could, then walked to Texas where they had kinfolk named Cherry. They told the neighbors to tell Alva where they were but it was three years before the war was over and he came. They moved back to Rhea's Mill and built again.
